How you will die

How you will die.....

There is a great blog post "How You Will Die" by  NATHAN YAU

Type in your sex and age, it throws us the likelihood of you dying from a variety of causes e.g. cancer, circulatory problems and so on. Yau used the Underlying Cause of Death database maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It provides data for the number of people who died in the United States between 1999 and 2014. The records are based on death certificates, which require an entry for a single cause of death. 

The CDC classifies the causes into 113 subcategories, which fit under the umbrella of 20 categories of disease and external causes. More specifically, the CDC uses the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), which is published by the World Health Organization.

So at age 70, I have a 64% chance of still being alive, and if I am dead the cause is most likely to be Infection, Cancer, Circulatory, Endocrine or External causes. Interesting.
